You need it? We got it!

If you forgot the mayonnaise or the sunscreen or warm socks, we’re here to help. We have food, snacks, camping and backpacking supplies, souvenirs, ice, flashlight batteries, hats, milk, and so on. One thing we don’t have, though, is alcohol; our permit specifically forbids it. For beer and wine, you’ll have to drive down to Mono Hot Springs.

The store is where you buy your ferry tickets, rent a boat, and get advice about the area.

Are the kids bored? We have books. Is Dad bored? We have toys. Is Mom bored? We have chocolate. Every year we scour the market for unique items to offer. We have things from all over the world, exotic items from Africa, the Middle East, Europe, South America. You never know what to expect.

Postcards, baseball caps, coffee mugs, bandanas, refrigerator magnets and T-shirts will satisfy the souvenir craving that afflicts those who must show tangible proof of where they’ve been.

It’s a nice place to spend a few minutes and/or a few dollars.
